Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

779. Come, Holy Spirit, melt and break our hearts of stone

Cantor: Listen now for the Gospel;
All: Alleluia!
Cantor: It is God's word that changes us;
All: Alleluia!

1 Come, Holy Spirit, melt and break our hearts of stone
until we give our lives to God and God alone.

2 Come, Holy Spirit, root in us God's living word,
that we may show the faithfulness of Christ our Lord.

3 Come, Holy Spirit, bind the broken, find the lost,
confirm in us the fire and love of Pentecost.
